I doubt anyone who owns an air cooled 911 is under 25K unless they are rich or spoiled.....

Everyone of us is under 25K, and the K stands for Kilo, or 1000.

I'm still young at heart. Or maybe just immature...

I turn 23 this Sunday. Both are mine, and totally paid for all by myself. Hard work and knowing how to turn a wrench pays off. Oh, and the deals for these cars are out there still.

Awesome cars Jack!

New duallys around here are 50-70K and I see alot of young guys driving around them, 20-30K for a 911 seems like really good value if you think about it, there should be a bunch of youngbloods, maybe they are lurking?

Don't be shy, say hi!!

Just turned 27 when I bought my '88. That was my present to myself when I got my first big bonus check, after we paid off the house...

You can finance the Dully though, probably have to pony up $30k in cash for the 911 which weeds out a lot of young people, plus they like WRX anyway.

I'm 37 and I'm pretty sure the youngest air cooled guy in our PCA chapter. A few high school and college guys have Boxsters so I'd bet they are on Pelican, just over on the water pumper side.

I'm 27. Bought the car at 26 because what's another 30k when you're already saddled with six-figures of student loans?

Bought my 914-6 when I was 25, but that was 40 years ago! Luckily, I've always had at least one or another aircooled Porsche since then.
